Kathryn Lammers heads the firm’s family law department. She is a skilled advocate with years of experience representing clients in all areas of family law including divorce, complex property valuation and division, cash flow issues, child custody, spousal maintenance, domestic abuse, appeals, child support and third party custody.

Ms. Lammers’ skills as a family law attorney have been widely recognized and she was honored as a Minnesota Superlawyer for the years 2014, 2015, and 2016. Prior to that, Ms. Lammers was named a Minnesota “Rising Star,” an elite group of emerging lawyers, either under the age of 40 or in practice less than 10 years, who have demonstrated the highest standards of excellence. Katie was one of only several hundred lawyers in Minnesota chosen as a Rising Star. Katie Lammers has earned the distinction of Rising Star for the years 2011-2013.

Katie has represented hundreds of Minnesotans in civil litigation cases, and is experienced in jury trials, appeals, and bench trials. Being a rule 114 qualified neutral and a certified SENE and FENE mediator, she has settled numerous cases through mediation, but does not hesitate to take cases to trial if they cannot settle.

Katie recognizes that going through any issue affecting someone’s children, money, property and future is stressful and is often one of the worst times in a person’s life. Katie and her legal team work to guide her clients through this transition as smoothly as possible.  She will return your calls, make sure you are informed about the process, and guide you to resolution.
